    Pen Culture Of Shrimp By Fisherfolk:The BOBP Experience In Killai,Tamil Nadu, India - BOBP/WP/49 1987
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This paper describes a shrimp pen culture pilot activity at KiIIai, Tamil Nadu, India under which selected fishermen operated small-sized shrimp pens, applying a technology package for KilIai conditions devised earlier during 21 months of technical trials by the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). The paper discusses the project’s socio-economic and technical approach, the problems faced during implementation, the results, and some recommendations for bett er profitability. A BOBP socio-economist and a senior administrative officer of the Tamil Nadu Directorate of Fisheries were responsible for the overall planning, implementation and monitoring. Technical inputs were provided by a BOBP aquaculture technologist. The field team at the project site consisted of two aquaculture technologists (biologists) of the TNDF, while a social worker engaged by BOBP liaised with fisherfolk and the technology team. This is the third paper on the KiIIai p roject. BOBP/WP/35 discussed the findings of 21 months of technical trials during 1982—84, while BOBP/WP/32 discussed a techno-economic end social feasibility study of shrimp pen culture, based on field surveys in the region conducted late 1983, after the technical trials.

    Pen Culture Of Shrimp In The Backwaters Of Killai, Tamil Nadu - BOBP/WP/35 1985
    Also available in:

    This paper describes the results of a 21 -month experiment on pen culture of shrimp and finfish in the backwaters of Killai in South Arcot district, Tamil Nadu, India. It concludes that shrimp pen culture is technically feasible and that Penaeus indicus is the most promising of culture species. The experiment was carried out in collaboration with the Department of Fisheries, Tamil Nadu. The authors of the paper thank Mr. A. D. Isaac Rajendran, Joint Director of Fisheries, and other official s for their cooperation and assistance. The paper and the experiment on which it is based are activities of the small-scale fisheries project of the Bay of Bengal Programme (BOBP). Funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), the project seeks to develop, demonstrate and promote technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk and the supply of fish from the s mall-scale sector of the Bay of Bengal region. The project covers five countries in the region Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

    Credit For Fisherfolk : The Experience In Adirampattinam Tamil Nadu, India - BOBP/WP/38 1986
    Also available in:

    One of the prime needs of small-scale fisherfolk is credit. Under a “coastal village development project” initiated by the BOBP in Adirampattinam, Tamil Nadu, India, in 1981, the credit needs of fisherfolk were determined and a scheme was formulated under which a nationalised bank would lend Rs. 1,000 each to 100 fishermen for the purchase of nets. Fish marketing loans were given to fisher-women by a voluntary organization, the Working Women’s Forum (WWF) and also by the Fisherwomen’s Extension Service of the Fisheries Department. The project and its activities have been described in an earlier paper (BOBP/WP/1 9 — “Coastal village development in four fishing communities of Adirampattinam, Tamil Nadu, India” by F. W. Blase). The present paper evaluates the impact of the loans for fisherfolk (both project loans for fishermen and those provided for fisherwomen by the WWF and the Fisheries Department.) The paper studies the usefulness of the loans and the rate of loan repayment. It at tempts to analyse the success of the strategy of “group formation” for loan distribution and for development. The Coastal Village Development Project and the loan evaluation study which is the subject of this report are activities of “Development of Small-Scale Fisheries in the Bay of Bengal,” a project of the BOBP. It started in 1979. It is funded by SIDA (Swedish International Development Authority) and executed by FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations). Its main goal s are to develop, demonstrate and promote appropriate technologies and methodologies to improve the conditions of small-scale fisherfolk in member countries — Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
